Abstract: We present the results of comparison between characteristics of highly atypical shadow bands recorded during total solar eclipse of 4 December 2002 in Botswana and theory of Codona. For the first time the analysis was based on images of the phenomenon and not photometric data. Thanks to this, use was made of high spatial resolution and detailed plots of power spectra were obtained. The plots' shapes are in excellent agreement with the one predicted by theory. Due to the novel nature of the recording process, some noteworthy image processing techniques were used.
